Transferring data from non Unicode R3 system to Unicode system via PI


Hello Experts,

I am working on transfering data from a non unicode R/3 system to Unicode system via PI/XI and viase versa. I have the following queries:

Non-Unicode to Unicode:

What happens if the Identified language key is not consistent with the text value that exists for eg: if English text in non-unicode system has Spanish characters within..

Does PI have all parameters required to recognize the MDMP details of the source/target system (Business/Technical definition) and do the necessary conversion accordingly

Unicode to non-Unicode:

The understanding is that Unicode can contain more characters than a non-unicode (for a specific language). How do we handle a scenario where the additional characters (that are in unicode version & does not exist in non-unicode one) are sent from Unicode to non-unicode based system.

Your expert views will be highly appreciated.
